Machinima

How They Got Game Project (Stanford Humanities Lab)

The Machinima Archive is dedicated to the academic investigation and historical preservation of the emerging art form known as machinima. Machinima is filmmaking within real-time, 3D virtual environments, often appropriated from existing video game engines. High-quality new machinima of all kinds are regularly added to the archive for your enjoyment.

The Machinima Archive is a collaborative effort of the Internet Archive, the How They Got Game research project at Stanford University, the Academy of Machinima Arts and Sciences, and Machinima.com.

This is a fresh capture of the first Quake movie, arguably (therefore) the first example of what later came to be called Machinima.  This was captured on the occasion of the (nearly) 20th anniversary of the release of Diary of a Camper.  It was captured using WinQuake v. 1.09 at 800x600 resolution. The video records loading of the demo file (also provided here), so that the process of demo playback is visible.   For more information about this title, see the earlier upload to the Machinima...

"Machinima and real-time animation is an art form and more, it is a great storytelling genre. The ability to screen capture what is in a virtual 360 degree environment makes a lot possible for us as film and video makers. Using the Second Life engine as our animation platform means we utilize every nuance we can to craft our films. Public Safety and Health concerns are also our concerns, as parents and citizens.

Waiting is a collection of waiting poses, collected from videogames and shown sequentially. It is a removal of player agency coupled with a positioning of avatars in safe places as a challenge to the assumption that modern games are difficult and adversarial. Finally, for non-gamers, it is a visual example of an anti-violence game. The player and avatar do nothing, and thus no violence occurs.

I already have implanted some MBV scenes to Unlimited Escapism vol. 0: Shock Your Senses and I intend to use this in a music video (which is only an idea in my head atm).

"Here is my interpretation of the model changes done by Snoman. You saw all of these at his movie, Wandering Dreamscape. As an interesting looking side effect, the "Eastern Lordaeron" model change affected the undead starting areas as well. Snoman did not show that in his movie so click that play button to see it. Olibith is once again making a short guest appearance. And yes, this movie is just wandering around plus zoom-ins and zoom-outs. If that is not your thing, do not even...

"Zinwrath: The Movie" was one of the first World of Warcraft-based movies to push post-production of MMO machinima significantly beyond editing of screen captures. Myndflame's project did not yet make use of software that exported models and maps from the game, such as WoW Model Viewer or WoW MapView, but instead relied on manual techniques that nonetheless made fast-paced visual effect possible, such as compositing and overlays of shots. For example, Myndflame "hand cut"...
